    I am so happy to have found your blog–thank you so much for these awesome ideas! We are planning a handmade holiday season, and I am getting some great inspiration from you. Can’t wait to see what else is coming!

  407. kristin says:

    Love the book! Lots of great ideas!!!

  408. Jennifer Davis says:

    Oh, my! I was unaware of the existence of “Carefree Clothes for Girls” – I have at least one new granddaughter on the way with a 50/50 chance on two more!! Now to have a good “Carefree Clothes for Boys” for the other two!! (Whew – from 1 grandchild to 5 in less than a year!!) My sewing machines are getting a good workout!

  409. Lorrie says:

    Mmm, chai tea syrup – I’m definitely printing that! Reading is my favourite way to relax – after a day of sewing!


  410. Love the corner bookmark! Ingenius. I really, REALLY want to win the book. I have seven daughters and while the book is perfect for the four youngest the three oldest know how to sew and can help make the clothes. Keeping my fingers crossed on this one!

  418. Katie says:

    Oh yay! I’ve been dying to get a look at this book. Love the “Read” concept for today. We had some pretty serious-looking snow this morning. It would have been lovely to curl up with a book and read and sip tea.

  419. Liz says:

    As a mom of a pre-schooler and an infant, I really like the texture words book. I am definately going to be making an x-marks the spot bookmark for my mom for Christmas. It looks fun, and functional.

  427. Maggie says:

    That carefree clothes for girls book would be so perfect for my two little ones. How adorable. I am also going to try the chai tea syrup.
